This is where Martin spent their first 120 years or so, eventually outgrowing the place and moving nearby in the mid 1950's. Today they use this facility to prepare the Martin 'seconds' and they sell these parts to luthiers and kit guitar builders around the world (without the Martin brand stamped on them, of course). They are currently refurbishing the building to make it more of a destination for history buffs. The history in this place is incredible. All the original guitars that are now referred to as 'Golden Era' or 'Authentic' came from this building. In other words it was here that Martin stamped their name as the best guitar makers in the world. Mind blowing!
